Affected apps


Steps to reproduce

Upgrade from Nextcloud-14.0.4 to Nextcloud-15.0

Expected behaviour

user_external should work

Actual behaviour

user_external can't be enable because version 0.4, which is embebbed, in nc-15.0 doesn't support nc-15.0.
<nextcloud min-version="13" max-version="14" />

I tried do simply modify max-version to 15 and it seems working (with IMAP authentification in my case).

Moreover, since the application is provided in the archive, if it's already enabled, occ upgrade failed with:

UnexpectedValueException: The files of the app "user_external" were not correctly replaced before running the update

I'm also relying on IMAP authentication.

I ran into this same issue. The Web based update failed. I manually disabled the app, completed the update from the terminal, edited the max-version value as OP mentioned, and now everything is working. I've included my steps below just in case someone comes looking for an immediate fix.

occ app:disable user_external
occ upgrade
vi apps/user_external/appinfo/info.xml
occ app:enable user_external

I also use IMAP authentication, and I just wanted to add after this update 2FA is now working for external users, which was not true in the past. Very nice.

thank you for reporting
duplicate of nextcloud/server#12506
also we probably unbundle user_external and update it independently via appstore (#22) so it will be fixed with NC 15.0.1 or as soon as we have got the update via appstore ready
